    10 weeks is way too early to tell on Silkies. Your best bet is to wait until it's at least 4 months. Sure is a real cutie though!

    I say pullet just because mine had combs at that age
     
  5. I also think it's a pullet, please keep us posted when he/she gets older so we will have a better guess.

    I cannot tell for sure...looks like it could be a pullet though. Silkies are difficult!

    My guess is a pullet too. But silkies are much harder to tell, until the get older. Good luck.
